Introduction

The Allgäu (or Allgaeu) is the southernmost part of Germany, bordering to and in the Alps. It is a holiday region in summer and in winter. Hiking, skiing, relaxing, swimming - the Allgäu offers a lot of leisure facilities. There are many lakes suitable for swimming. The Allgäu Alps, which to a large part extend into Austria, overlap, but are not identical with the region Allgäu.
On this site, you will find many interesting places in different categories, described with personal impressions. All locations can also be found on the map, all the names are in the glossary.

Getting along with English

Most people in Allgäu learned English in school, so in theory, almost everybody should speak at least a few basic words of English. Generally, many people will understand you in cities and in tourist regions. There could be problems communicating in English in very remote areas, but then, in some valleys deep in the mountains, it is also hard to communicate in High German.
